Absolutely stunning! What a way to start our Bali experience. We had a great welcome and lots of 'wows' as we were shown around. A delicious meal had been ordered via Wayan and was very satisfying after a tiring flight and Denpensar airport mayhem. Wayan's spread was varied and one of the best meals we had in Bali and we would recommend anyone to try her food.
The open plan living room area leading out onto the patio and the pool was like a dream. The downstairs bedroom was lovely leading onto the large open aired shower room. The second bathroom came off the living area. Upstairs the bedroom led onto a sitting room balcony with wonderful views of the rice fields. The lighting upstairs was limited at night but the there was enough light coming from the balcony during the day.
One afternoon we had a massage on the patio bed. With the open air and the sounds from the surrounding rice fields made this a memorable experience. We walked along the rice fields one morning to sample the peace of the area. Seeing the birds, butterflies and geese in the rice fields with the locals working in the fields made us appreciate the location more.
The villa is located in the rice fields and with the bathrooms being open you will experience wildlife in the villa. Having geckos, frogs, a chameleon and a field mouse in the bathrooms added to the experience of the villa and the location. Please bear this in mind when booking the villa! The communal pool adjacent to Harvest Moon was lovely and peaceful and we had no noise from the rescue dogs either.
Nyoman's patient and caring attitude is what we needed to help us explore the places around Ubud. Any experiences booked through Nyoman will work out cheaper then going to the companies directly, Nyoman helped us with our tailor made itinerary and it was a pleasure to hear his own experiences of Bali life.
Any issues we had with the villa were dealt with by Nyoman and Yudi. Their attentiveness to the issues was excellent.
Breakfast prepared by the villa team each morning was a great start to the day. The morning smiles and freshly prepared food in front of you made you appreciate the place even more.
Thank you all for making this one of the best trips of our lives.
